The Paper Shelter ……. Glitz and Glimmer

Good morning world, sorry I am a little late today but all these late nights are taking their toll so I decided to be a lazy bum and stay in bed this morning…. what a treat!

That now means I am running round like a loon trying to wake up and post my card because I didn’t even consider scheduling my card, tut tut. So please excuse any typos, I will probably spot them later and edit my post.

I have 2 cards today. My first is my DT card for
The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog. We have a theme close to my heart …..


I have been wanting to use this beautiful image from The Paper Shelter for a little while now. She is called ‘Spring in the Heart’ and is just so pretty.

I have coloured her with Spectrum Noir pens and kept to the nice soft shades for this card. I drew the grass using little flicks with the pens and I think it has worked well.

The papers are from an old A5 paper pad by Forever Friends, I think it was the Pink Parfait collection. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the little butterflies were just in my stash. I am going to start going through all my stuff and using these little bits and bobs that I have. Makes a nice change from my usual embellishments.

Now I am not sure if this is showing up very well on my photo but I sprayed all the pink flowers with the new Pink Spray and Sparkle from Crafter’s Companion. They will make a donation to Breast Cancer Care for every can that is sold. So you can add sparkle to everything knowing you have helped a very worthwhile charity.

Oki doki, that’s all my words over with lol. Don’t forget to check out our challenge blog for details of the priza and also all the other wonderful creations by the design team. Oooops I almost forgot ….. WELCOME to all the new members of the DT and congratulations!!!!
